Whew, just mowed the SE lawn and shoveled and raked a half yard of red cinders. Gonna have to call it quits for outdoor work today.

I wish I had one of these:

No, because the cassette that comes with the Kickr is crap. I threw both of my Kickr cassettes away. Since 12 speed is supposed to fit an 11 speed hub, seems like no problem to me.

So, I think you mean "Yes" is your answer to the question to fact that the Kickr does come with a cassette is a negative (since you throw them away)?

A couple months ago a guy said it was cool to see an old bike in the mountains. I think he was disappointed when I told him it wasn't as old as he thought.

Next time, tell 'em "The bikes not that old, but I make up for it." :roflmao2:

To clarify, the Kickr come with a very low end cassette that is cheap and noisy. Even with a new chain and proper derailleur adjustment, the cassettes on both of my Kickrs were not up to my standards; I threw them away and replaced them with decent Shimano cassettes.

Supposedly, 12 speed Shimano is said to fit an 11 speed hub so if a person went to 12 speed, one could just fit a new cassette.

Personally, I don’t have a problem with buying a new quality cassette for my Kickrs if and when I ever go to 12.

Edited to add, the Kickr cassette is a Sun Race, IIRC. I have a new Kickr that I just un-boxed and I’m pretty sure that is what it was.

I'd bet you could sell a lot of those in California right now. Until they realize it's just a sprinkler upside down.

I think that part is obvious.

Get on I75N and keep driving until things really get dumb.

Delightful day on the bike! When I saw that this weekend was supposed to be hotter, I feared the worst - 100 degrees and smoke. But it's more 80s-low 90s which is actually pretty comfy on the bike, because the humidity is below 40%, so sweating actually works to cool you, rather than just getting in your eyes and running off you in rivulets. I rode all by RPE, since my HR strap is buggered and the new one isn't here yet.

I took the Ritchey, and I gotta tell you - Tom Ritchey knows how to design a road bike. It does everything right, even after 25 years. I've got lighter bikes, and fancier bikes and faster bikes, but I don't have any that are better.

The #LPLO situation isn't really much better on Chrome.

It's worse on Chrome. The only one I see that it doesn't mess with is Firefox.

By the time you see something it's already happened. It's impossible to truly keep up.

Man, I switched from E to C because AI thought it was supposed to be better.

Rode several miles this morning on the wheel of a very strong rider who had his phone in his jersey pocket, playing pop hits of the 80s and 90s. Horrible.

Slow night, everyone must be watching the Cook Out Southern 500 at Darlington.
